Annual holiday detours of 11 bus lines help keep riders, shoppers bustling around the mall’s busy parking areas

TriMet is helping to make way for the holiday shopping season! For the ninth year in a row, we’re working with Clackamas Town Center to help keep buses, riders and shoppers moving when the mall and its parking areas are bustling! Starting Friday, Nov. 26, we will temporarily detour buses on 11 lines to reduce delays caused by extra traffic, especially in parking lots. We understand that this temporary change can cause some inconvenience for our riders, and we thank them for the patience as we do our part to make the holiday season happier for everyone!
